>> mark: welcome back to the kron 4 news. we want to go to a developing story, president obama is taking questions and answers about his budget. >> to your peers in your
7:59 am
house, you cut back on which can afford to focus on what you can't do without. that is what we have done for this year's budget. when i took office, the deficit in half by the end of my first term. our budget meets that pledge, but as owhich is on a path to spend what we make. it freezes domestic spending over the next five years. cutting the deficit by more than four trillion dollars or the next decade, bringing annual domestic spending to its lowest share of the economy since dwight eisenhower. some of the savings come due leslie's, more efficiency. one example, billions of dollars will be saved by getting rid of 14,000 office buildings, lots, a government-owned properties that we
8:00 am
need. special interest that are no longer needed by vero bills that contain air marks. even though we cut ways to end in efficiency it requires us to make taft races. freezing the sarah reese of hard-working employees for the next two years. cutting things i care but deeply white community action programs for low- income communities, some conservation programs scaled back. these are programs that would not be cut if you're in a better situation. but we're not. we also know that cutting annual domestic spending alone will not be enough to meet our fiscal challenges. that's what the bipartisan physical commission concluded. that is what i concluded. sweaty clothes to tackle it wherever i find it. domestic spending,
8:01 am
health care, spending that is embedded in the tax code. some of this spending that we began to tackle in this budget, a lot of the billion dollars that secretary dee identified in defense cuts. to get where we need to go we have to do more. healthcare has to go further, including medicaid which is the single biggest contributor to our long-term deficits. we should strengthen social security for future generations. do that without slashing benefits. i am willing to work with everybody on capitol hill to simplify the individual tax code for all americans. all of these steps are going to be difficult. that's why there are democrats, independents, republicans to work together. recognize that there's plenty of arguments in the months to
8:02 am
come, everyone has to give a little, when it comes to difficult traces about our budget, prerelease we have found common ground before. ronald reagan came together with a tip o'neill to save social security. many democrats and republicans in congress today came together in december to pass a tax cut that has made americans paychecks a little bigger this year. so i believe, we can find common ground that we have to work. we owe the american people the government that lives within its means well still investing in our future. in areas like education, innovation, infrastructure. that is the principles that should deride this debate in the coming months. i believe that's how america will win the future. with
8:03 am
that, let me take some questions. >> to by mr. president even talking a lot about the need for tough choices, your plan does not address the long-term crushing cost of social security, medicare, medicaid the real drivers of long-term debt. where's your leadership on that issue? when will we see your plan? and on the farm front, the uprising egypt has helped cause protests in other countries, i am wondering how you balance your perch for freedoms against the instability that could endanger u.s. interests? >> on the budget, what my budget does is to put forward temptressetough choiceso that by the middle of this decade our annual spending will match our revenues. we
8:04 am
will not be adding more to the debt. to use an analogy that families are familiar with, we don't run up the credit card anymore. that is important. that is for to do. but it is necessary to do, i think the american people understand that. at the same time, we'll make some key investments of places like education, science and technology, research and development. the american people understand that is required to win the future. we have taken this double to the discretionary budget rather than an the study. machete. thay accounts for about 12 percent of our budget, we have a lot of other stuff that we have to do. you talked about social
8:05 am
security, medicare, medicaid. the truth is social security is not a huge contributor but the other into art. i am confident we can get social security done. in the same way that ronald reagan was able to get it done, but parties coming together, modest adjustments. i think we can avoid slashing benefits. i think he committed stable, stronger and for not only this generation but the next. medicare, medicaid are huge problems. health-care costs are rising. what i have said, i am prepared to work with democrats and republicans to start dealing with that any serious way. we have made a down payment on that with health care reform. that is part of what it was about. the projected deficits are going to be about to it and $50 billion lower over the next 10 years. a trillion dollars
8:06 am
lower than it would've been if we had not done it for the following decade. we still have to do more. what i said, if you look at the history of how these deals done, typically is not because there is an obama plan out there. is because democrats, republicans are committed to tackling this issue in a serious way. we have done is we've been very specific in terms of how to stabilize discretionary budget, make sure not adding additional debt by 2015. and then together, democrats, republicans to tackle these long-term problems. in a way that i think will ensure fiscal health et same time ensure the were making investments in the future. we will be in discussions
8:07 am
over the next several months. this is free to be a negotiation process. >> mark: you're listening live to president obama discussing his budget plan. the president is saying that his plan puts the country on a path to pay for what it spends. by the middle of the decade. republicans vowing to pass their own budget with deeper cuts. will follow the latest and your back.the right back.

8:11 am
happen because of terrorism. it not happen because to go around killing innocents. it will happen because people come together. in a private moral force to the situation. that's what garner's international support and internal support. and lasting change. >> thank you, and mr. presidenmet prwhat concerns you have about instability especially in saudi arabia? as the demonstrations spread, do you foresee any affect on oil prices? and i ran can you contest about the unrest there? there

freedoms. and a more representative government. understanding that america cannot ultimately dictate what happens there. anymore than we could in egypt. ultimately these are sovereign countriesovereign cout have to find their own way. we can then support for those were seeking a better life. obviously we're concerned, each country is different. the message that we have sent even before the demonstrations in egypt, has been to friend and foe alike, the world is changing. you have a young, vibrant generation, within the middle east, looking for greater of opportunity. if you are curbing these
8:14 am
countries you to get out ahead of change, you cannot be behind the curve. so, i think the thing that will largely achieved stability is if in people, ordinary folks, fill their pathways for them to feed their families come and get a job, education aspire to a better life. the more steps these governments are taking to provide these avenues, formability an opportunity the more stable these countries are. these garments in any society have to be set in this particular area where people can communicate not just
8:15 am
through some suntrust government or state ran tv they can get on the smart phone, twitter, mobilize hundreds of thousands of people. my belief is as a consequence of what happening in egypt, a government in that region are starting to understand this. my hope is that they can operate in a way this is responsive to his hunger for change and always do so in a way that doesn't lead to violence. >> to by mr. president. let me get my glasses to read these. >> that is a, bad sign.

add to the credit card, not but the promise or a budget expert, if you could just explain to me how you can say that, when you look on page 1-71 which ensure you have read. the deficits go from 1.1 trillion debt to 768, and then they creep up again by 2021 its at 771 billion. the total for those 10 years the total debt is 7.2 trillion dollars. that he say there were living within our means? >> let me be clear and when i'm saying, i am not suggesting that we don't have to do more. we still have all this accumulated debt, as a consequence of the recession, a series of decisions that were made over the last decade. we
8:17 am
have racked up a whole bunch of debt. there's a lot of interest on that debt. in the same way that if your credit card and you get a big balance, he may noyou may ne adding to principle we still have all that interested you have to pay. we have a big problem in terms of the accumulated interest. that's why we have to whittle down further the debt that has been accumulated. that's problem number one. problem #2 is rising health-care costs. programs like medicaid, medicare was to pass this decade are going to start zooming up again. as a response to publishing getting older and health care costs. you have those two big problems. what we have done is to try and take this in stages, of our
8:18 am
discretionary budget. to make sure that whenever we are spending on an annual basis, we're also taking in a similar amount. that is that the one. september 2ndstep number 2 is how to make sure we are willing down the debt. that requires an entitlement reform, tax reform. in order to accomplish those two things, we have to have cooperation between democrats and republicans. i think that's possible. i think that's a the american people are looking for. what i think is important is not to discount the tough choices that are required to stabilize the situation. it is insolvent but it does stabilize it. if
8:19 am
the king get that done, that starts introducing this concept of us being able to in this series with corporate to meet those challenges it laid the predicate for us being able to solve some of these big problems where the course of the next couple of years. so, again i his centerpiece just want to repeate first up is to stabilize, step is to make sure we're taking on some of these long-term. we have to get control of a short-term burst. the bush going to elecpeople going to be looking at us. this trees is mimicking are serious >
